COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bridge Road Brewers together with gypsy brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø of Mikkeller created a one off brew one Friday evening of March 2012. The result is The Dark Harvest. Inspired by the timing of the collaboration, it was decided to make a dark beer, using locally grown fresh hops. Of several research hops being grown at Rostrevor Hop Garden, one variety stood out for selection and was harvested just hours before being added to this beer.

Colore marrone scuro, schiuma beige a grana finissima e di buona persistenza. Al naso intensa tostatura, leggermente secca, si avverte una nota dolce. Birra molto beverina, corpo medio, buon ingresso di malto tostato e cioccolato, retrogusto amaro e finale secco. Carbonazione media. Una bipa ben fatta, con una luppolatura decisa, un buon equilibrio tra dolce e amaro.

mcberko (13492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
On tap at Bitter Phew, pours black with a large brown head. Aroma brings out loads of roasted malt and piney hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with a highly roasted, nearly burnt malt quality upfront, backed by tons of bitter piney hops. Nicely balanced, with a harsh finish that works. Very good.

M_Sack (605) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottled 10/4/14. Deep black, off white frothy head. Aromas of milk chocolate, toasty coffee, loads of malt and a lick of grassy hops. A strong background of chocolate, coffee and milk with grassy/earthy hops going straight through the middle from start to finish. Beautiful beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (3361) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle.Nose of roast malt, piney hop, light chocolate, and alcohol fumes. Dark brown color with translucent edges and a light tan head. Flavors of roast malt, moderate piney hop, quite fruity, light citrus, and a gentle roast malt finish. Thin-medium body, light on the palate. Certainly a bit of a variant on the US version of the style (given the AUS hopping). Nice, but not really exceptional.

Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours near black with a massive tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a smooth dark molasses flavor with a nicely bitter finish. It all goes together pretty well.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle from Plonk. pours almost black with tiny white head. Floral and grassy hop aroma, lingering bitterness. Just a hint of roast at the end. A nice beer, with emphasis on the IPA over the black.
